The day begins, with a grin And a prayer to excuse my sins I can walk anywhere I choose Cause everybody listens to the . This is the second track off of Boogie Down Productions' third studio album, Ghetto Music: The Blueprint of Hip Hop. "Why is That?" Track Info.

The second Boogie Down Productions album devoted mostly to consciousness raising, Ghetto Music: The Blueprint of Hip Hop finds KRS-One evolving into a fierce advocate for both his community and his chosen art form. He's particularly concerned about the direction of the latter: he's wary of hip-hop being co-opted by the pop mainstream, and the album's title comes from his conviction that real hip-hop is built on the vitality and rebelliousness of the streets. Meanwhile, as the Teacher, he's actually put together lesson plans for a couple tracks: "Why Is That?" and "You Must Learn" are basically lectures about biblical and African-American history, respectively.
